    I haven't given up, but have been working on other things lately. I thought some time away from the book might give me a new perspective. I'm tired of going around in circles with the same old ideas.

    I have some ideas, but in Pel's interview, he said that when you know, there will be no doubt about the location. So I have ideas, but they only take me to general areas, not to a specific spot. I'm waiting for that epiphany. 8 years down, 5 to go...we have plenty of time!

    I have not given up, either, but due to some home problems for the past 6 months, have had to put the book aside for a while. I hope to get back to it soon and will be refreshed and ready to go at it again.
    Not all who wander are lost.

    I never posted here before but have been working on this for about two months. Love this puzzle. I had a little breakthrough, and came up with a solution that led me to an exact location, multiple things correlated exactly, I was really surprised how many things matched up, especially on the Key page at the top, but also on the border words on multiple pages. I went up to MDI this weekend to the spot, and once there, found that my solution led to a really precise spot, something I didn't understand without being there, and I found...something. A marker, another clue, not sure, but way too coincidental to be an accident. And it fits exactly with what I've heard on here that Pel said, "It might be harder to find with snow on the ground."
    There was another thing there that matched, again, surprisingly exactly up so a second point, and the third point would be an infinity symbol of some type, the one that matches the Cancer Astrology symbol on the Key Page, looks like a 69 sideways. The solution is definitely about a triangulation. I realized what the infinity symbol on the key page means as well; the infinity symbol next to the red X, I mean. I know astreeturover found two rocks hanging together from a tree, and that might be it, but I guess it's no longer there, but if we're in the same area, I combed it as well and found nothing nor a place where it could realistically be. astreeturover, pm me if you care to share some info, we can be vague. I'd love to know if what I found matches what you did.
    I'm beginning to think it will never be found. I contacted Pel for some clarification on the rules, haven't heard anything yet. Are we sure he said there is no digging needed? It doesn't say that in the book or the website. I was really excited but then disappointed because apparently the puzzle continues further

    bnut, I agree it has something to do with triangulation.


    And yep, still working on this. Planning a trip to MDI soon, just have to get my husband on board (lol).
